Dublin, Sept. 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Pet Dietary Supplements Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.

The global pet dietary supplements market to grow at a CAGR of 5.26% during the period 2016-2020.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global pet dietary supplements market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated through the retail sales of pet dietary supplements to individual consumers. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

One of the key trends for market growth will be increasing number of patents in ingredients market. The global pet dietary supplements market has been witnessing an increasing number of pet dietary ingredients being patented in recent times. Pet dietary supplement manufacturers are using patented technologies to better formulate their products.

According to the report, development of age-related health issues will be a key driver for market growth. As pets age, their memory, ability to learn, and the functioning of sensory organs tend to decline. With advancing age, most pets also become obese, and their health deteriorates. For instance, as dogs age, their metabolism changes and the need for calories decreases. Due to metabolic changes, dogs tend to put on weight, which leads to diabetes; damage of joints, bones, and ligaments; heart disease; increased blood pressure; decreased liver function; digestive disorders; and other related issues.

Further, the report states that in the US, close to one-third of the total number of cats and dogs were administered with pet dietary supplements in 2014. However, the concerns about the safety of these products remain strong among pet owners. Currently, regulations imposed on the manufacture of pet dietary supplements are in disorder. There is very limited data available on the safety of dietary supplements for dogs, cats, and horses, which is a major challenge for the market.
